MALVERN, AR – Raising more money than four of the College’s seven past annual fundraisers – Big Bingo Bash – last year’s 1st Annual Woods n’ Water fundraiser for College of the Ouachitas Foundation was wildly successful. The unique event brought in just over $14,000 for scholarships for COTO students.
The COTO Foundation is thrilled to, once again, host this event to help fund student scholarships. The 2nd Annual Woods n’ Water will be held Saturday, September 22, 2018, at Family Farm. Stations are set up around the room where attendees can play games to win prizes. Silent and live auctions include items of interest for men, women and children. Of course, there is also dinner! The event will be catered by Corky’s BBQ.
Last year alone, our College students received nearly $4.7 million in financial aid to assist in funding their education. In 2016-17, 83% of our students received some type of financial aid to go to college. Scholarship money helps to provide educational opportunities to these students that wish to attend college but need a helping hand. With the proceeds from seven years of Big Bingo Bash and one year of Woods n’ Water, the College has funded 317 scholarships at $500 each to 211 different individuals.
Sponsorship opportunities remain available at $250, $500 and $1,000 levels.
Tickets for the event are $25 for 11 and up and $15 for 10 and under. Purchase tickets by calling 501-332-0234 or 501-332-0270 or visiting the campus.
